A man killed in a crash in Hawke's Bay yesterday has been named by police as Brian Faulie Bowden, 39, of Masterton.

Mr Bowden, a Wairarapa helicopter pilot, was a passenger in a van that collided with a 4x4 vehicle near the intersection of Kereru Rd and SH50 near Hastings.

Senior Sergeant Luke Shadbolt, said the driver of the van was in a stable condition at Hawke's Bay Regional Hospital.
